, mississippi, which started in 1928, and which was destroyed when katrina went through there a few years back. they're rebuilding it, but it's a very famous pottery, primarily run by walter and mac anderson, who did most of the decorating through the '30s and '40s and '50s. walter is recognized as an artistic genius. couldn't really socialize. he was left to himself to decorate and design. but this is what he did. the colors, the patterns. what also i notice, where the clay shows through, and then the clay color inside, looks to me like shearwater pottery. so i'm pretty sure that's what it is. and it's what we have to do when we don't have a mark. i did research. there's not an exact picture of this in any of the books that i found. and so we have to make certain educated guesses. so i'm guessing you've got a piece of shearwater pottery, shearwater cat. in terms of the decorative style, it's faience technique, background color laid down, and then decorative elements and darker colors starkly painted against it. if this is not shearwater, it's a nice ceramic cat, probably from the '40s or '50s
